Watch Ronda Rousey Destroy Bethe Correia in 34 Seconds at UFC 190

Thirty-four seconds. The Queen of the UFC never ceases to amaze.

Ronda Rousey was intent on punishing opponent Bethe Correia, and she did just that. Rousey stood and exchanged with the Brazilian striker, took her best shot and then iced her. Correia lasted longer than Rousey's previous two opponents, but that wasn't a tall hurdle to cross.

There was not a lot of action to break down in those 34 seconds. It was just Rousey coming forward and looking to land on Correia's face.

The reigning champion stated in the post-fight interview that she hopes no one ever brings up her family in trash talk ever again, and if they are smart, they won't. Rousey showcased her knockout power at UFC 190.

This kind of KO is rare in women's MMA, but Rousey's handspeed and torque from her core allow her to generate incredible power. Ask Correia or Alexis Davis. In both fights, Rousey did extraordinary damage with basic shots. She continues to evolve her game, and she becomes more terrifying in each outing.

Rousey is a rare talent. She doesn't just beat her opponents; she embarrasses them.

That is exactly what she planned to do to Correia, and that is what she did. Correia fell to the canvas in comical fashion. It will be a scene thrown on highlight videos for years to come, ensuring that she will have to continually relive that moment.

Up next for Rousey will be the third fight with Miesha Tate. Tate has lasted longer than any other fighter against Rousey, and she is beginning to add more power to her punches. However, after UFC 190, perhaps that, too, is a bad plan of attack. We will see that fight next, but no date or venue is set.

Until then, enjoy the spectacle of Ronda Rousey's dominance.
